This may be the fastest soup to ever be made – 10 minutes tops! Each 1-cup serving is also only 165 calories and packed full of healthy, whole foods. I think the toppings on this soup are what really take it over the top.
Avocado Tortilla Soup
adapted from Vitamix’s Whole Food Recipes cookbook
2 cups chicken broth
5 Roma tomatoes, quartered
1/3 bunch cilantro, stemmed
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 avocado, peeled, pitted
1/2 lime, peeled
1/2 cup canned black beans, drained
1/2 cup corn, drained
optional, but strongly recommended for garnish:
2% greek yogurt
mexican-blend shredded cheese
Place broth, tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, pepper, salt, avocado and lime into Vitamix (or any other blender) container in order listed and secure lid. Blend on high. If you have a Vitamix blender, you’ll blend for 6-7 minutes or until heavy steam escapes from the vented lid. Reduce speed to Variable 2 and remove the lid plug. Drop in corn and beans and blend for an additional 10 seconds.
If you don’t have a blender that is able to heat up, you’ll blend all ingredients and then heat on stove until hot.
Pour soup in bowls and garnish with shredded cheese, tortillas chips, sliced avocado, greek yogurt and cilantro.
